Aero-News Quote of the Day
"The cost of accomplishing humanity's goal of exploring
and understanding life beyond our atmosphere cannot be realized
unless the space industry diversifies itself. The private sector
has a unique ability to innovate, as it is not subject to many of
the bureaucratic pitfalls that can sometimes hamper government. It

cheaper and better. By utilizing procedures and by taking paths
that either do not work or do not apply in a government setting,
these business-minded pathfinders can take the average citizen or
company to places that heretofore were unrealistic."
